Turpin High School Reviews

Turpin High School has been an incredible place that has helped me push myself to excel in academics and involve myself in a plethora of extracurricular activities. The school's academics offer a wide variety of classes, allowing students to take classes that are both interesting and rigorous. Not only does the school have great academics, but they also are great at interacting with the student body. The school has done a good job at providing lots of extracurricular activities. The only thing I would fault Turpin is the lack of information regarding certain extracurriculars. While it is nice that they are providing a lot of events and opportunities for students, they need to better promote them. Overall, Turpin has been an incredible high school experience. It has provided me with an incredible academic career, immense extracurricular opportunities, great sense of community, and most importantly the skill set I need to transition to the world on my own.

Turpin High School is all about community. They have several programs to help students feel more included and that your voice is heard. From mental health awareness to LGBTQ+, Turpin is inclusive in everything. Moreover, their academic programs help students achieve the best grades possible and provide different levels of classes to help accommodate the needs of every student. Their faculty helps students reach their best potential and care about the student body as a whole, not just the submitted work. Turpin is the kind of school you want to go back to and send your kids to.
Although it is not very diverse and the food kind of sucks, overall Turpin High School isn't an awful place to be. The teachers really try to make class fun and exciting and really care about your education. They are always there after school if you have any questions about an assignment or just general life questions. Even if the academic environment is boring, the plethora of clubs and activities will always have something to interest anyone. Even if you can't find a club you wanted to join, starting one is easy and painless. Our school spirit is unmatchable; at any sports event, home or away, there are people to cheer on the soccer or basketball players to victory.
